  1. That was the advice I received directly! I am not sure about how the master's is treated. All I know is that there is some kind of bonus involved. Sorry, don't have the answers... Also, I didn't receive bonus because I didn't finish my masters prior to the deadline in Dec.
  2. That's very interesting! They change their requirements a lot and unfortunately, are not very transparent about it... I know for sure though that Western only considers undergrad and gives points for graduate studies. Anyways, thanks for getting that info out! Though, I do wonder how they treat GPA from masters. For e.g., is the entire Master's considered one GPA or do they look at specific years. With that said, I don't want you to feel despair. The annual GPA criteria for UofT changes every year (and on their website they still say 85% is competitive). UofT until very recently also didn't
  3. For the class that entered in 2019 (It's on the UofT website on the admissions page)!
  4. I applied to UofT with cumulative ~3.86 GPA. Didn't get an interview invite. Unfortunately, UofT places too much emphasis on a cutoff GPA (all this talk of being holistic is nonsense!). I inquired and they said that it was just my lower GPA that prevented me from getting an interview (I have a robust extracurricular profile, DAT scores were decent, no red flags in casper). For 2019, I believe the cutoff GPA was ~3.94! Right now I am in a Master's prog, but since I didn't finish it by application deadline (December), they didn't give me bonus marks for it. Also someone above mentioned that it i
  5. Hey, I did and got an interview! They ask you to send a letter form Ryerson indicating that the courses are at the year level (which obviously they are)! So apply fellow Rye alumni!
  6. Athabasca just hands you a textbook and expects you to do all assignments etc. There are no lectures or modules to help you through. I did organic chem from Ryerson and it was good. I only did the first part and the teachers there were very helpful! Plus, the classes in summer allow you to quickly pass this course. That being said, it is only easy if you put in the work which is certainly significant for a course like organic chemistry. I wont say its easy but you will get a grade if you put in the work. Also, for laboratory component at Ryerson, you have to register it as a second class.
  7. Hey, thanks for replying. The issue is that my Ryerson transcript doesn't differentiate courses according to years. In this case, how do I prove that these courses are eligible for the described criteria?
  8. According to Western's DDS website, it says it will only count the 2 years if it is at a year level or above. The undergrad (Bachelors in Applied Sciences) I did is from Ryerson University (fast track for 2 years) and they do not rank their courses by year level (I have talked to them and this is what they have told me). In this case, how will Western assess whether the courses I have taken are at the year level or above? What can I do to prove the year levels? All most all the courses I took were required for me to complete (almost no electives).
